The best 1,000 grit stone for the money, by far.
I own 8 or 9 quality Japanese Waterstones for sharpening my Japanese chef knives and in the 1,000 -1,200 grit range this is by far the best stone that I have. I have other stones in this grit range that I paid 2-3 times what I paid for the King 1200 but this stone has the best feedback, cutting action and creates the nicest slurry. Its much better than the King 1000 and I don't know why but it is. Buy this 1200 stone and you won't be sorry. In reality, you only need the 1200 and the King 6000 and you are good to go. I have stones that go from 400 up to 8000 grit but you really don't need them all. Add a balsa or a leather strop with some fine honing compound and you have it all to get your knives or tools razor sharp.
Happy with my purchase
